While running two different cars during a season might seem a disadvantage, Donelson noted that juggling the rides has helped his learning curve.
“It’s been an up-and-down year this year,” he said. “It’s been different running with a new team and communicating what I’m feeling in the car to them. Driving the 42 car, Dad and Jeff always had my back and knew what I liked when I was in the car. With the Sweat team, I’ve had to learn to communicate better so they know what the car’s doing and how to change it to fit my driving style.”
He went on to note how different things from each car have helped make both cars better on race nights.
“The Wee 3 team is a great group of guys and they’ve been real patient with me,” he stated. “We’ve taken some of the things I’ve learned from that group and used it on the 42 car and vice-versa. This year has really challenged me and tested my skills.”
